Until April 1 (really!) you can catch Katie Pitt of Kathryn Rebecca at the Spring One of a Kind show. She is being featured as one of the show’s ‘Rising Stars’, which of course wouldn’t surprise anyone who knows her beautiful jewellery. Come and peer into her showcases–it’s like gazing into a springtime meadow alight with delicate flowers and colour.

A beautiful Bride!

Not long ago a friend of mine, the talented artist Rachael Speirs, got married!  I was very privileged to have Rachael wear my poppy studs with a drop for the special occasion.  All the photo’s, by Laura Jane Photography are SO stunning I had trouble deciding which ones to share but I’ve narrowed it down to these lovely few!  Congratulations Rachael and Scott. *Kathryn Rebecca

Leaving

I am sad to say that after two-and-a-half years, this is my
last blog for Jewel Envy.
When I first arrived here, I didn’t know anything about
jewellery supply places or about the Canadian style of making jewellery, but I
found it really nice working at Jewel Envy and being able to work with so many
different, wonderful kinds of jewellers. At Jewel Envy, I become a real jeweller.
I feel sad about leaving, but at the same time, I am really happy about my
future because I know what I want to do.
Thank you so much, Jewel Envy. I am going to miss you all.
Bye.
Young

A New Couple

Congratulation to Nicole and Robert that they are getting marry soon! They spent two Sundays and made wedding bands for each others. Without any jewellery making experience, they did such fantastic job on carving and finishing.

Enamel students

More pictures of student work coming your way!
This is my first time teaching the 8 week Enamel class and I am excited about all the samples and finished pieces my students have been creating.  I am looking forward to seeing what they are going to be making for their final project, which they will be starting soon and completing in a couple of weeks.  I’ll be sure to post the finished creations!
